The steep shores of Jurkalne

The steep shores of Jūrkalne are one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kurzeme.  The shores are up to 20 m high, washed by the waves and mostly made of sand and narrow bands of pebbles and stones.  Opposite the centre of Jūrkalne is a viewing platform and a set of stairs that lead to the sea.  The shore continues in the direction of Pāvilosta and Ventspils.
